Property description

Our condo
The Martin family has been coming to Sanibel since the1980’s and loved it so much we purchased this unit. We stay here regularly and pride ourselves in having a well equipped, well maintained and clean living space for our guests. We updated the unit in 2004-5 and in 2015 the kitchen was redone with granite counter tops and new lighting. The ceilings throughout were smoothed, painted and crown moulding added.

Our unit is on the ground floor (what a convenience!) in Building 1 which gives us closest access to the beautiful beach on the Gulf side of Sanibel Island. There are two bedrooms (one king bed and two twin beds), two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room and lanai. It can accommodate six using a double high blow up mattress.

As a courtesy to our guests we provide two adult bicycles, a pack ‘n play and booster seat. A gas grill is located near the front door and the heated pool and tennis court are a short walk away.

The Complex
Villa Sanibel is a small friendly complex of 20 units in three two-story buildings. Unit 1D is located in building #1 and as close to the beach as you can find anywhere on Sanibel. Because the condo sits on the elbow of the Island, we have a clear view of striking sunsets and sunrises and you are a few steps away from picking up a shells or building a sand castle.
The complex is adjacent to the bike path and a short bike or car ride to the two food stores on Island, unique and interesting restaurants and shops. We have quick access to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, the lighthouse, historical museum, movie theatre and Big Arts to see a play or hear concerts of all kinds.
Sanibel is nationally recognized as a destination not to be missed and if you come, you’ll see why.
